Over 2.5 goals at Liverpool vs Lyon 3/5 for Wednesday’s friendly contest
Market: Over 2.5 goals
Odds: 3/5 @ Bet 365
Looking to pick up some much-needed momentum before the new Premier League season gets underway, Liverpool will face off against Lyon on Wednesday evening.
Starting with Liverpool, while the Reds may have managed to clinch the Champions League title last season, the Premier League outfit have endured a very worrying pre-season campaign. Suffering a 3-0 loss against Serie A side Napoli over the weekend, they have failed to win any of their last four pre-season appearances, losing three of those contests. Even more worrying for Liverpool, they have now conceded two or more goals in each of their last four pre-season outings and have not recorded a clean sheet in their last five matches across all competitions. It is also worth noting that the Reds have recorded just three clean sheets in their last 10 matches away from Anfield.
As for Lyon, while the French outfit may have managed to secure Champions League football for this season, the Whites have endured an inconsistent run during pre-season. Losing two of their three matches during their pre-season preparations, they have also shown some continued defensive issues. While they may have managed to score a pair of goals in back-to-back appearances, the Ligue 1 outfit have conceded eight goals in their last three outings and have not recorded a single clean sheet in any of their last five matches across all competitions. With eight of the last nine combined matches seeing over 2.5 goals at full-time, we’re backing a similar outcome on Wednesday evening.
